Luminaria di San Domenico
Each year during the first few days of August, Praiano’s community celebrates a miracle related to their patron saint. In the heart of town, in the cathedral’s central piazza, thousands of lit candles follow the pattern of the mosaic design, beautifully illuminating the square. During the evenings, fireworks, impressive fire-themed entertainment, and music are part of the festivities, and locals light candles and votives along their terraces. On the last night, “fire balloons” are released into the air and over the sea - a sight not to miss! Visit the event's main website to view a spectacular video of the setup and festival.
